Callicarpa americana

American Beautyberry is a loose open shrub best known for its brilliant magenta-purple berry clusters which add a burst of color in late fall as the leaves drop.

This understory shrub, native to the southeast U.S., is easy to grow and requires little maintenance. Although its native habitat is moist woods and swampy edges, it will tolerate drier conditions. I only water mine when we go through periods of drought.

The seeds and berries provide food for multiple species of birds, and the tiny flowers are a nectar source for many pollinators, including butterflies. Part shade, medium soil moisture, 4-8’ height.
